These are the topics of the August issue of the Turtle Times, the newsletter of our Boavista team:

  • Middle of season: Despite the record year 2016 we were surprised by an unusually high number of nesting sea turtles on Boavista’s beaches. There was a lot to do…
  • Hatchery: In addition to the hatchery on Lacacão Beach, where nests are rescued from the detrimental effects of a large hotel situated directly on the beach, we have for the first time set up a hatchery on the beach of Boa Esperança.

  • Front Team: We introduce you the coordinators of our five beach camps.
  • Anniversary of the Turtle Foundation: With a big party at the Boa Esperança Camp, our entire team celebrated the 10th nesting season on Boavista and the fifth birthday of our local organization Fundação Tartaruga.
